Hospitals can protect staff and patients by checking the history of a vendor before ordering personal protective equipment
PHBCalerts.org provides free vendor monitoring services to over 2,800 health care facilities
PHBC operates a vendor alert blockchain and actively resolves incident reports for health care facilities by reaching out to those vendors whose products or services have been reported.
PHBCalerts.org records hospital reports for each vendor in an immutable blockchain record and makes it available to a growing number of health care organizations around the world.
Over 2,800 hospitals, clinics and nursing homes can now access PHBCalerts.org free of charge to check the reliability of vendors with verified reports, including those who supply COVID-19 protective equipment, or any other medical product.
Registered vendors receive a PHBC alert before any reports on their products and services are recorded on the blockchain so they can take action and resolve reports in which case no entry is made on the blockchain.
Hospital operators that are not yet listed in PHBC's directory of eligible health care organizations can request free access to PHBCalerts.org. Vendors who wish to check their status and receive alerts about reports for their products and services can register here.
If your hospital did not receive Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), or if you have received the wrong or inferior products, you can submit your alert below. As a registered medical facility, you can check a vendor before you place an order for critical items, especially if you prepay for PPE and any other products that are in short supply due to the COVID-19 crisis.
HOW IT WORKS
Hospitals can check the domain names of vendors' websites and email addresses on the PHBCalerts.org blockchain against a list of previously reported companies. Additionally, manufacturers can register their authorized distributors whose domain names are encrypted on the blockchain so nobody can see a manufacturer's customer list. A hospital that enters the domain name of a vendor will instantly see if the company is an authorized distributor. For this purpose, the domain name is converted into a code and if it matches an existing authorized distributor code on the blockchain, PHBCalerts.org will return a positive match, which means the distributor is authorized. PHBC alerts.org can also check if an unauthorized vendor who is offering a brand product has a reliable track record. In all other cases, a vendor is reported to the registered manufacturer.
